Sunflower Adaptation Evaluation
National Sunflower Association of Canada (NSAC)
Manitoba Crop Variety Evaluation Team (MCVET)
Evaluate newly registered oil and confection type sunflower varieties for adaptation and yield performance in the Central Plains region of Manitoba. In 2018 CMCDC did not grow any confectionary sunflowers.
Variety trials for all of Manitoba’s major crops are conducted across the crop growing regions of Manitoba every year by the Manitoba Crop Variety Evaluation Team (MCVET). This performance data, along with variety characteristic information, is summarized in “SEED MANITOBA” and online at www.seedinteractive.ca. Both formats provide long term yield data as well as annual yield comparisons at various locations.
Entire findings are available by downloading the report PDF.
